IVRS Study running out of New Zealand with Drug Supply Management

May 2006
A new set of Phase II studies were initiated for a New Zealand based research organisation using IVRS for Patient Randomisation in conjunction with Swift Call's newly developed Drug Supply Management capability. The Drug Supply Management system dispatches drugs to the sites on activation and using just-in-time techniques automatically re-supplies the sites following patient randomisation and on subsequent treatment visits. This approach mimimises drug manufacturing requirements during the trial and wastage at the completion of the study.

First Web Based Phase II Trials Active

March 2006
With the completion of the development and validation of the new Web based Patient Randomisation system Clinitec has deployed the first of its "IWRS" systems for an international study operating out of Sydney.
